"Work SP1"?! Wut the hell is that?

It's a SSR Professor SP1 knock off - for the last time.

It should look convincing either in a black or silver face. All other colors would make it look cheap and too obvious that it's a replica - including that so-called "gunmetal" of theirs... Gold could be a hit or miss. Rota's gotta work on their finishes... I would buy these wheels if they came in 19x9 or wider and finished in clear-coated black face, that'd be sweet...

yeah, the gunmetal looks like crap IMO... I think what they did is like what they did with the Rota Boost... In that wheel they took elements of both the Advan RG and the SSR Type-C.. I think they took the D2 and mixed in some stuff from the Work and the SSR.


I would love to see it in black... the gold one looks nice.. I would also like to see the spokes be a flat color too.. that might look nice.

I talked to Kim at Rota Wheels and he said he's taking orders for next months shipment. They will be in 17X7.5 and 17X8.5. I'm not sure what colors as I requested mine in Gold/pollished lip.

Jose, you are kidding right? Gold with polished lip? That will look so bad on your car. Too bling for the beast. Might as well have spinners on them IMHO.
